Cook caught four passes for 54 yards on five targets in Friday's preseason game against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Cook outplayed Richard Rodgers, who also got some first-team snaps but was targeted just once for an eight-yard gain. Rodgers is listed atop the unofficial depth chart and has started throughout the preseason, but Cook may have already overtaken him as the team's primary pass-catching tight end. With the fourth preseason game unlikely to provide much information, comments from the Green Bay coaching staff now take on added importance.

Cook caught two passes for 16 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Cook's production did not stand out Thursday, but the good news is he made it through the contest healthy. He has not experienced any setbacks since coming off the PUP list earlier this month, putting him on track to be ready for Week 1.

Cook had two receptions for 10 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Cook began training camp on the PUP list as he recovered from foot surgery in late May. It looks like he'll be ready for the start of the regular season.

Cook (foot) has been lifted from the Packers' PUP list and will return to practice Tuesday night.

EDGE Analysis

After signing with Green Bay earlier in the offseason, Cook was able to fit in a short stint of work during OTAs before undergoing foot surgery, but hadn't practiced with the team since. The Packers have taken a cautious approach in bringing back seemingly all of their players from injury, so expect Cook to be held to a limited level of participation for the time being and have his workload increased as the rest of training camp unfolds.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers expects Cook (knee) to return to practice soon, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

When asked about Cook's status Sunday night, Rodgers said he hoped Cook would be able to practice "next week." Rodgers was vague about which "week" that actually is, but it appears Cook is nearly ready to get back on the field. Cook should still have a chance to suit up for Week 1 barring any setbacks before then.

Cook (foot) has no timetable for a return to practice, but the second week of the preseason could be a realistic target, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Still recovering from early-June foot surgery, Cook is unavailable for the start of training camp and will presumably miss the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 7. Assuming he gets healthy for a portion of camp and the preseason, the 29-year-old tight end figures to compete with Richard Rodgers for snaps. Cook joined the Packers in March on a one-year, $2.75 million contract.

Cook (foot) has been placed on the Packers' physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cook is likely on the PUP list due to foot surgery he had in June. The tight end said he was fully healthy but was likely over exaggerating, and now that Green Bay's medical staff has checked him out it's clear he needs some more time to recover. It's not clear how long it'll take him to return. Look for Richard Rodgers to see a bulk of the first-team reps as long as Cook is kept out.

Cook (foot) recently declared he is fully healthy after undergoing early June foot surgery, The Gwinnett Daily Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though encouraging, Cook's claim should be taken with a grain of salt, as players tend to be over-optimistic when it comes to their own health. Ultimately, the status of his foot cannot be officially confirmed until Green Bay's medical staff is able to check it out themselves. That confirmation may still be weeks away, though, as the Packer's training camp doesn't begin until July 26.

Cook underwent foot surgery earlier in the week and will miss the rest of the Packers' OTAs, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cook was brought in by the Packers during the offseason on a one-year contract to add depth at tight end alongside Richard Rodgers, but the team will have to remain patient while Cook heals from this recent foot surgery. The procedure was described as "preventative" to ensure a minor issue doesn't turn into something serious during the regular season. The team expects to have their 6-foot-5 tight end back for training camp, but they won't rush their newest offensive weapon as he'll be an important piece of the puzzle throughout 2016.

Cook has agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.6 million contract with the Packers, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cook was released by the Rams earlier this offseason after finishing with 39 catches for 481 yards and zero touchdowns in 2015. Now, he'll join the Packers on a one-year, "prove-it" deal in hopes of landing another long-term deal down the road. Fortunately for Cook, Green Bay's lack of speed at tight end makes him a unique target on offense, and a quarterback of Aaron Rodgers' quality is surely an upgrade from any of the signal callers he's played with across his seven-year career thus far.
